Our Haute 100 list details the accomplishments of the most influential people in each of our markets—Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. These people continue to make moves, so rather than waiting for the next Haute 100 issue to come out, we thought we’d provide you with regular updates on those Haute 100 members who are making headlines. On our Haute 100 Miami list is ever flourishing mogul, Micky Arison.
Company: Carnival Corp., Miami Heat
Industry: Cruise, NBA
What Makes Him Haute: This Carnival Corp. chairman and CEO took control of the Miami Heat in 1995 and guided the franchise to its first NBA championship in 2006.
What Makes Him Haute Now: The Miami Heat’s own Micky Arison topped the Forbes 400 list of the wealthiest Americans. Topping the Florida list at number 69, Arison’s 2010 estimated net worth was projected to the clouds with the assembling of dream-team LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade in August. Joining Arison are fellow Haute Floridians H. Wayne Huizenga at no. 72 and Fred DeLuca at no. 63.
